Thank you for helping Stamp Out Hunger!

Central Florida letter carriers recently collected 83,833 pounds of food as part of the 27th annual "Stamp Out Hunger!" food drive, spearheaded by the National Association of Letter Carriers. This annual event is the nation's largest single-day food drive, which benefits Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and its network of more than 550 feeding partner organizations.

On May 11, Central Floridians left bags containing non-perishable food items such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice and cereal by their mailboxes for local letter carriers to collect. Second Harvest volunteers sorted the donations at local post offices.

"The timing of this food drive is critical, because more than 50 percent of the local student population relies on free or reduced-price school lunch plans, and we're just weeks away from the start of summer break," said Dave Krepcho, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. "We know summer creates additional insecurity for families already struggling to put meals on the table. It's an incredible feeling to see the community open their hearts and pantries to help."

 Help us Stamp Out Hunger on May 12.
